High-impact colors in shades of light green, bronze-and silver-streaked burgundy, and dark green, plus heat tolerance and a mounding habit, make the Carnival series an excellent landscape plant for shady situations. A height of 10-12 inches with a slightly larger spread make them easy to use in large containers as a foliage plant.
